Financial Aid Seminar

On October 30th, Osceola Fundamental High School is hosting a Financial Aid Seminar from 6:30-8:00 PM.  This is a free seminar designed to help parents and students develop a better understanding of Bright Futures, other types of scholarships and more.  Because this would have been the focus of our senior meeting, we are moving the senior meeting to this night so parents and students can attend.  The seminar will count as a meeting and we will have cards available.  If for some reason you are unable to attend the seminar on October 30th, you can attend the regularly schedule SAC meeting on October 13th in the Auditorium from 7-8 PM.  We hope that you and your student will attend the Financial Aid Seminar on October 30th and that you will find it most helpful in preparing your student for their college or technical experience.  We would also like to invite our junior parents to participate in this meeting.  It will count as an October meeting in lieu of PTSA or SAC.

HOW DO I CHECK MY STUDENT OUT EARLY FROM SCHOOL???

The most efficient way for a parent to check a student out early is to contact the student’s Clerk by email or phone an hour or more before the release time.

A parent may also send a note with the student stating the date and time the student should leave.
The student will receive a yellow PTL (Permit to Leave) slip to release them from class to come to the Front Office.
The parent comes into the Front Office to meet the student and sign them out.

Clerks

Student Parking and Drop Off Concerns

Parents, we are still having issues with people dropping off and picking up their students in front of the administration building.  This is not…I repeat…is not an authorized drop off/pick up area.  The front of the administration building needs to be kept cleared for emergency vehicles.  Please cooperate with us by utilizing the student parking pickup area or the south student car circle next to the auditorium.

Student’s over- flow parking area is the north lane of the teacher’s parking lot.  Any students parking in an unauthorized parking area will result is a disciplinary referral and possible revoking of driver’s privileges.    Parents please help us by reminding your student of this expectation.

Universal Breakfast Program

Please be reminded that Osceola Fundamental High School follows the ”universal breakfast program” that all students are allowed 1 free breakfast daily regardless of their lunch status.
